CFFS 2024 – TEEN NIGHT! Silkscreening with María [In-Person Only]
FREE, all-ages, and open to the public! No RSVP required. Suggested for teens.
To kick off our Teen Night co-presented with TeenTix, you can embark on your own silkscreening journey! Join artist María Zamora, who teaches screen printing at Coyote Central and the Pratt Fine Arts Center, as she offers a hands-on experience silkscreening her unique CFFS-inspired celestial design onto bandanas (while supplies last) and postcards! This FREE activity is open to anyone who’d like to try their hand at silkscreening (so please dress accordingly if you don’t want to get inky) and walk away with their very own piece of art.
Come prepared to embark on a new hobby – once you’ve silkscreened, you can never go back! Soon you’ll be redecorating every inch of your clothes, and making original stationery, zines, and concert posters. 👩🎨🎨
For any questions about the event, please contact Nico at email@example.com.
Ticketing, concessions, cinemas, restrooms, and our public edit lab are located on Northwest Film Forum’s ground floor, which is wheelchair accessible. All doors in Northwest Film Forum are non-motorized, and may require staff assistance to open. Our upstairs workshop room is not wheelchair accessible.
We have a limited number of assistive listening devices available for programs hosted in our larger theater, Cinema 1. These devices are maintained by the Technical Director, and can be requested at the ticketing and concessions counter. Also available at the front desk is a Sensory Kit you can borrow, which includes a Communication Card, noise-reducing headphones, and fidget toys.
The Forum does NOT have assistive devices for the visually impaired, and is not (yet) a scent-free venue. Our commitment to increasing access for our audiences is ongoing, and we welcome all public input on the subject!
If you have additional specific questions about accessibility at our venue, please contact our Patron Services Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our phone number (206-329-2629) is voicemail-only, but we check it often.
Made possible due to a grant from Seattle Office of Arts & Culture, in partnership with Sensory Access, our Sensory Access document presents a visual and descriptive walk-through of the NWFF space. View it in advance of attending an in-person event at bit.ly/nwffsocialnarrativepdf, in order to prepare yourself for the experience.
NWFF patrons will be required to wear masks that cover both nose and mouth while in the building. Disposable masks are available at the door for those who need them. We are not currently checking vaccination cards. Recent variants of COVID-19 readily infect and spread between individuals regardless of vaccination status.

NWFF Patron Services Manager
María is an Interdisciplinary Visual Artist who received her BA with Honors from University of Washington in 2020. María finds joy experimenting with different mediums such as screen printing, painting, and design, collaging together different subjects, elements, and textures into colorful pieces. While expanding her practice in arts, María explored the world of textile design as a screen printing apprentice at the Fabric Workshop and Museum in Philadelphia.
Primarily using 2D art forms to celebrate her cultural background and the natural world, María also uses her art to raise viewers’ awareness about the ongoing crisis in her home country Venezuela. Her appreciation for the power the arts has to tell stories, educate and call for reflection awoke her interest in film and led her to connect with Northwest Film Forum, where she began working as the Patron Services Assistant.
María believes that art needs to be easily accessible to the members of our community. Now María is excited to welcome you during NWFF screenings as the Patron Services Manager or you can find her teaching Screen Printing to youth at Coyote Central.
